It looks like Drowning Pool have started the writing process for their follow-up to “Hellelujah.” The band confirmed the news during a recent chat with 97.1 The Eagle.
C.J. Pierce said the following:
“We’re working on new songs right now, which is awesome. We’re working on tunes for the next record. We have a bunch of stuff on the plate. Everybody’s brought amazing stuff, material. The thing with this is just to try and go through and see what we’re gonna do on the next record. So we’ll hash out all the ideas and songs and then start narrowing it down. So it’s nice to have more than enough to go through.”
He also added the following when asked how the new material compares to “Hellelujah”:
“It’s just a continuation of that. I mean, it’s rock and roll. There’s a lot of different ideas, again, on the table, so it’s coming together. Jay [vocalist Jasen Moreno] and Steve [bassist Stevie Benton] bring a lot of lyrics to the table as of late as well. I love the double meanings in everything that we have. We’re getting deeper with the lyrics — deep tracks — so it’s getting there. [We’re] just evolving as a band, and it’s monumental. This next record with Jasen, it’s three records in [with the same singer] — the first time we’ve done that with anybody. So, obviously, we like Jay; he’s gonna stay around.”
